Convergence Insufficiency

Convergence Insufficiency

           Convergence insufficiency is a common eye condition where the eyes have difficulty working together when focusing on nearby objects. This can lead to symptoms such as eye strain, headaches, double vision, and difficulty reading or doing close-up work.  It is especially common in adolescence as the amount of near work is increasing rapidly and the eye muscle coordination isn’t fully formed.

Treatment Options: Effective treatments for convergence insufficiency may include:

Vision Therapy: Specialized exercises and activities to improve eye coordination and convergence ability.

Prescription Eyewear: Glasses with prisms or special lenses to aid in focusing.

  • Home Therapy Programs: Techniques and exercises to practice at home between Vision Training sessions.
